Angus has become the first health & social care partnership to sign up to the aims, values and principles of the Technology Charter for People Living with Dementia which has been co- produced by Alzheimer Scotland.
The charter was signed at the Digital Health and Social Care Learning Network day held at Dundee University last week which was jointly organised by the Scottish Centre for Telehealth & Telecare, Digital Health & Care Scotland and NHS 24.
Service manager for accommodation and home care services with Angus HSCP Jillian Richmond said, “I’m delighted that we have signed up to this Charter. We know that technology has the potential to support people with dementia to live independently and safely in their own homes for longer.
“There is a wide range of equipment available and signing the Technology Charter demonstrates our commitment to this important agenda.”
